to gut medicare and maybe social security. it is deja vu, the same list of offerings by the republican party they have been giving the public in the last two elections, no to health reform, no to immigration, no to election rights. it worked great. no to health reform, no to immigration, no the gay rights, and maybe we'll see, no to medicare and no to social security and medicare. it is all the same. from one side all the same. what is interesting is the other side. where the change is on the other side of the aisle, yes, on the democratic side there are things that are the same. the democrats are saying yes to health reform, yes to immigration, and gay rights, mounting a defense to reproductive rights and now, they're adding something new, where both the white house and the democratic bench, the up and comers in congress and in the states, they are going back to a place they have you not -- they have not been in a while and for which the republicans have no answer. that is economic populism, yesterday, the blue state in massachusetts voted to raise their minimum wage to 11 an hour, in

't cut medicare or transform medicare into a voucher program. you don't make massive cuts in terms of medicaid, education, or nutrition programs. all of which the republicans want. and all of which is massively unpopular. and what the republicans also want to do is defend the wealthy and large corporate interests and prevent them from paying their fair share of taxes. so i think if the issue resolves of involves around how we create jobs, deal with wealth and income inequality. and by the way, the pope today just made an extraordinary statement on unfeddered capitalism and what it means when so few have so much and many have so little. i hope that's a lesson congress can absorb. i think if you focus on the economy, i think the democrats will do just fine. >> all right. and a fitting message as we head into the thanksgiving holiday, focusing on inequality. thank you so much, senator bernie sanders. >> thank you. >>> coming up, we get into the supreme court decision today to take up contraception and the affordable care act. but first, let's head back to glendale, california, to hear

he was referring to the vast majority of americans who either have medicare or medicaid or who get -- and most people who get their health insurance through their company. they keep their plans. but that distinction wasn't made. and the president gave an opening for the politics you're talking about. and the president has to realize and i think does now realize that the same sort of media dynamics that led to the argument for health care -- in other words, the vail of poor people who can't get coverage and are scammed in the system, the media lens can turn around and put the spotlight on people who are denied coverage. which is exactly what's happening now. and i think the president who is so good at the big picture, at framing the big picture, i think realizes that he needs to make that big argument again because it exposes the republicans' real game here. which is to repeal the law. that's their only game. and they say it openly. they say it absolutely openly. all the hours of talk you hear about what's wrong with the website, the republicans don't care what's wrong with the webs

programs like medicare part d come and the massachusetts help reform that was obamacare's predecessor. most people tend to sign up for coverage closer deadlines, so that is what the administration hopes will vindicate them after the first month, which did not go well. host: but if the deadline is not until march, why were expectations so high to begin with? people do not have to sign up until later. guest: that is right here at march is a key deadline because it is obviously the end of a six-month enrollment period. the other date is december 15, which is when people choose plans if they want them to kick in in january. there are a lot of people losing their coverage right now and they're going to want to remain insured, and for them, the middle of december is the crucial deadline. the reason that that is tough for the administration is it comes only two weeks after the deadline, where they say they're going to have the website fix, which is the end of this month, so if they cannot have healthcare.gov up and running, functioning enough for millions of people to actually buy their health pla
